With-out soap and water, the union will start selling the mangoes in cities such as Pune, Didn’t even Sourav Ganguly say once that he dreaded dropping you? Aisa koi baat nahi hai aur Dada ne kya drop kiya there are selectors He must have said that jokingly I feel there is no harm in asking the captain why you are not there If someone is better than you then its fine Anyway all that’s old talk In the last four years I have never asked anybody and nobody could give me the right answer But don’t you ask questions Majak mein different thing (It’s different when said in jest) I like to do whatever is in my hand Till the time my body allows I will keep bowling keep enjoying Did you ever think about cutting down your pace like some of your old team mates to prolong your career My action is like that — I am not the one who will bowl 130 kmph If you have seen the IPL I was bowling at 137-138 as that’s my strength Everybody knows themselves better Look at the case of Zaheer he cut down his pace to bowl a longer spell and he did a fantastic job That’s not the case with me Sad point in India is if you cut down your pace and do well then people will say pace kum kiya toh acha hogaya But if you don’t do well then same people will say arre isne pace kum kar diya hai toh bekaar hogaya hai (In India if you do well after cutting pace they will say he is doing well because he reduced the pace But if you don’t do well the same people will say he has become bad after cutting down pace) It’s all about results When Umesh Yadav and Varun Aaron bowl 140 plus and do well they will say oh we have got the bowler These boys are future of India And when the same boys go for runs they will say they might be quick but are very erratic This country unfortunately is result oriented Not only country but media is also part of this At 36 do you have to change your training schedule or practice You have to be sensible For instance if you are preparing for T20 games then you have to do short and sharp training Be it running bowling These things come with experience Quantity is not important quality is important The last T20 game I played was the T20 final I have not played a game in the last six months There are 25 odd days left before I leave for Australia which is more than enough for me I will play more T20 games before I fly to Australia Isn’t it tough to bowl after long breaks Nah I was bowling but I was not playing any matches Competitive match that is I was playing a couple of club games I was practicing day in day out At my age and experience even if you ask me to go straight to Australia I will manage to do it with a few practice sessions under my belt These (Syed Mushtaq Ali) games are not about stats for me but its about getting overs under my belt – I have bowled four overs fielded for 20 overs What are you really thinking when we see you make the face you do after beating the bat— hands on face and you look as if you are thinking hard standing on the pitch Everybody is different There are so many things which only you people notice we don’t Everybody has their own style of playing thinking MS Dhoni does this (rubs his shoulder) If you have a good day the media will call it aggression and on a bad day they will term it as frustration Who do you rate as a great thinker of the game There are many people I have played with who have had different ideas As I said this game is result oriented If you are successful then people will say he is great thinker of the game And if you are not they will say he has no idea of T20 cricket MS Dhoni is really good with his team CSK He does not do too many changes He is very good reader of the game Michael Hussey is quite good Zaheer Khan is the one who has ideas for all the formats VVS Laxman was very smart when it came to Test cricket Shane Warne’s mind was very sharp in T20 cricket Sourav Ganguly of course Are you eying the World T20 now Yes definitely I will be lying if I say no-no I will be playing just these three T20’s and go home For me last 3-4 years have been more of hard work and mental thing Skill was always there you can improve skills but it is not that you will produce a new type of ball every six months There are that many balls only and you have to master them If you have to bowl a good yorker you have to practice If you have to bowl good out-swinger you have to practice The same goes for a bouncer You have to practice and practice Do you think that if not for injuries during different stages your career would have been completely different My biggest regret is that I couldn’t play too many Tests because of my injuries I played my last Test match some 11 years back I was 25 In 2009-10 Gary Kirsten and MS Dhoni asked me to play Test cricket but that point of my time I was not sure about my body I look back now and I regret it I should have said ‘yes’ because couple of years ago when I was 34 I played six four-day games for Delhi in six weeks I could have easily done it in 2009 I was than just 30 A start-stop star February 1999 Unexpected Test debut: Nehra makes his debut during an Asian Test Championship round-robin encounter against Sri Lanka on a flat-deck at the SSC 1999-2001 After an unremarkable debut Nehra finds himself back in the domestic fold forced to prove himself again of

subcontinent in 15 years at Bulawayo with five scalps and finishes as the highest wicket-taker for India in the drawn series with 11 wickets at 1972 He makes his ODI debut in the subsequent tri-series involving Zimbabwe 2002 Cements place in both formats: Busiest year in Nehra’s career as he plays in nine out of the 16 of India’s Tests and is also a fixed member of the ODI team that wins the Natwest Trophy in England and also the Champions Trophy in Sri Lanka His performances are largely inconsistent and unimpressive in both formats and there’s already sniggers about his unathletic fielding displays 2003 Spell of his Life:After an ordinary start to the World Cup in South Africa Nehra overcomes a swollen ankle and vomiting on the pitch to run through England with figures of 6 for 23 while producing a masterclass in seam bowling Ankle gives way: His ankle only got worse leading to a surgery before he returned at the end of the year for the tour to Australia 2004 Keeping his nerve: Nehra bowls a nerveless final over to clinch a nail-biter at Karachi India’s first match in Pakistan for almost two decades establishing himself as a serial death bowler for years to come Still barely 25 he plays his final Test on the same tour at Rawalpindi 2005 Has a successful year of sorts picking up 29 wickets at 2441 and is a feature of the ODI side before breaking down with another ankle injury followed by a number of operations on it 2005-2009 Nehra is completely out of the picture with most assuming him to have already played his last match in India colours He keeps sliding down the pecking order with the emergence of the likes of Sreesanth Munaf Patel RP Singh and Ishant Sharma 2009-2011 Comeback No2: Returns for the ODI tour to West Indies in June 2009 and becomes MS Dhoni’s go-to bowler in the shorter formats He finishes as the 2nd highest ODI wicket-taker in the world during this two-year period that culminates in an unsung role in India’s 2011 World Cup win 2011-2015 Nehra is once more lost in oblivion for another four-year period but remains a consistent wicket-taker and impact-maker in the Indian Premier League especially for the Chennai Super Kings 2015 Comeback No3: Against all odds Nehra is given another lifeline as he’s recalled to the T20 squad for the tour to Australia For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Related
